Award-winning quilt maker Phyllis Stephens works will be on display at the Oglethorpe University Museum of Art from June 24 to September 17, 2017.  Stephens is an award-winning fifth generation quilt maker, considered by critics to be a Master of African-American Story Quilts. “The long process (of quilting) allows me time to travel to some of the sweetest places in my memories, like the quilting parties I enjoyed as a little girl.  It was there that sewing hands and tall tales flowed one in the same. I enjoy every part, every process and the special privilege of creating a quilt,” Stephens said.
